    The 800D4 series is dead nuts neutral and more bottom up then top down Vs the old series. Itís exceedingly musical. Magico speakers vary so much from A to S to M that itís hard to pinpoint. The S is probably the closest sonically to the...

    Mike, out of curiosity, just how big of a difference in sound is there between the B&W and Magico speakers? I have been assuming that at the high end there might be some sonic differences between speakers, but overall they are in the same sonic...
